Room ok for price. Close to downtown. Really needs attention to detail. The new building clean but sketchy property next to parking. Holiday motel better for the price. Sound proof and quiet. Needs to remodel.

The marquee advertised the cheapest rates in town, and I was trying to conserve funds. The owner was friendly and aware of my desire the park my bike in front so I could keep an eye on it. The room was $49.95 for a non-smoking, kitchenette room with two beds. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The... More

The Rainbow Motel met all my 'must-haves': quiet, spotlessly clean, good pillows, hair dryer, walkable to downtown. It also has mini frig and microwave, and good coffee all day in the lobby. It's only about 6 blocks from the center of Bend and all the shops, restaurants, and Drake Park. The owners are terrifically accommodating, even allowing an early check-in... More

We chose the Rainbow Motel for a few reasons: 1) the price was right-$107 total for two nights. 2) the location-walkable to downtown Bend and walking was important since we knew we'd be sampling much of what Bend has become famous for. 3) the Trip Advisor reviews seemed realistically positive....we like to splurge occasionally, but are perfectly content with a...

I was pleasantly surprised at the Rainbow Motel, great spot, clean, comfortable and friendly owners. My room was average size, with fridge and microwave, table with 2 chairs & other standard furniture. Decor is a bit dated, but well cared for.

In July my husband and I stayed at the Rainbow Motel for the second time. This time, we didn't have reservations and when we drove in the vacancy sign was not on. We assumed that there was not a room available; however, we decided to check and as it turned out, moments before we walked in, they had received a... More

First of all that picture IS NOT of the Rainbow Motel. When I lived in bend I had my family stay there all the time because it was very affordable, but very clean and family friendly. It is also within walking distance of downtown Bend which is great. We only stayed in the non-smoking rooms which are a newer addition,... More

It's definitely the best value in a town, an affordable, comfortable place that is easy walking distance to town. Word on the street in Bend (or at least what we kept hearing) is that Californians/Tahoe people have been moving to Bend in droves and driving the locals out by skyrocketing the prices of land and everything else. This hotel was... More

We stayed here for a weekend skiing trip to Bend. Keep in mind that this is a budget motel, but it is very clean, and within easy walking distance to downtown Bend and restaurants. We stayed in the back building, and the room was very quiet, with a nice shower, cable tv, refrigerator, and microwave. It is not a chain,... More

I have to admit that I chose this hotel because I am a University of Hawaii alumni, GO BOWS!! and because I wanted a room that the door opened to the parking lot and on the first floor( my car was full of gear I didn't want to unload). The owner Panna was helpful and checked me in quickly and... More
